Forum: opensource_audio Subject: Help re-deriving

Would an admin please help me recreate the derived files for http://www.archive.org/download/BorrowingGreatnessFromAToad/05VillejuifLeaflet.wav?

When I initially filled out the metadata details for http://www.archive.org/details/BorrowingGreatnessFromAToad, I missed one of the files so the ID3 tags for the MP3 (e.g.) were wrong.

When I corrected them in the metadata editor, the changes were never reflected in the MP3. (Shouldn't changed metadata result in re-derivation of the affected files?)

When I requested a re-derive operation nothing happened. (Shouldn't something have happened here--at the worse re-deriving all of the files??)

So I removed the derived files then requested a re-derive. That resulted in an error about the missing files.

So I uploaded a new copy of the original WAV file and neither that operation or requesting another derive changed anything.

I have a couple of other uploaded entries with this same problem--I'd love to know how to fix them myself.

try to delete all .flac files and .md5 file, the problem seems to lie there. then try to re-derive again.

Deleting the MD5 file (and FLAC fingerprints... maybe) seems to have done the trick:

I deleted those files then requested a derive operation and now everything looks good.
